It was the right thing to do at the time. And, as predicted, I quite regret it now.

I don’t know that he ever really stops smiling; he’s certainly contagious.
We’re halfway through already, but have been here all the while, and relevant still.. Welcome, December. I like smiling at you; thank you.
le sigh. Ferrydust was broken.. exhibiting a couple of errors across the pages that I figured traced back to some plugin that was attached to a mysql or php version upgrade or something. I checked the internets and several other sites experiencing the same error. But I couldn’t find a fix or pinpoint the problem and I couldn’t hide it, so I went ahead and upgraded the Textpattern version to current (4.4.1), which hasn’t been done in ages. (Did this across two other sites that were similarly “broken”.) This solved one or two errors, but left another one or two.. I trial and errored until I found the plugin linked the the problem and disabled it. Surely that would break some pages on some articles but so be it. Otherwise seemed to be well. Discovered today that articles were not showing on some pages… Went through and eventually found a ridiculous fix (changed txp:article to txp:output_form) but a) that was really stupid—shouldn’t be that way and b) still others still not showing/working/cannot be so “straightforwardly” fixed. Will have to deal with it later. Scrap the whole thing and start with some existing uncustomized template?
I met a kid (4.75 or 5.75 years old) last weekend whose favorite food is broccoli. Reallly? What is it you like about Broccoli? “EVERYTHING!” Even raw, apparently.
I think having an emphatic love for eating vegetables is an excellent early start in life. If broccoli makes him so happy, just imagine when he gets to know bacon. :)
(I have broccoli with my lunch today, which is why this came up now.)
Good things can happen without being requested, but wishes can’t come true unless they are wished.

“Wanting people to listen, you can’t just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you’ll notice you’ve got their strict attention ~John Doe, from the movie Se7en (1995)” via Benjamin WL
The more I think about it, the more accurate I recognize this to be. But knowing it to be true is making me feel sad :-/
Refocus on the beautiful day, with cool air and bright lovely sunshine and colored leaves making crispy noises in the breeze. Also, strangely light traffic this morning — but it’s a work and school day, so why?
I should have a category here called “rambles”. Perhaps it simply goes without saying. Well, it has. I feel like I’ve not done this in a while.
I cut my hair the other day. And again the next day and next, because I had been really hasty and it was really uneven and then still uneven and then it’s close to where it should be now although shorter and still quite uneven but apparently unnoticeably so to others which works out fine.
Would’ve liked some chocolate chip cookies today but they were a bit overcooked so not nearly as enticing as the undercooked alternatives.
*update a few hours later. Some of the cookies were not overcooked and they are delicious.
Today’s a Happy Hour day.
